Gujarati Communities across the Globe is the first study to offer insight into the everyday lives and evolving identities negotiated by Gujaratis in a global context: in India, the United Kingdom, North America, Australia, New Zealand, East Africa and South Asia. Its orientation around the themes of nationalism, migration, new ethnicities, language and religion makes it an essential resource for students of South Asian studies, religious studies, the sociology of religion, social anthropology, diasporic studies, cultural and ethnic studies. It will also interest those who wish to understand how identities of a diasporic and post-diasporic community can be strengthened despite moving away from one’s original roots. [Verlagsinformation]
